An obligatory "Oh look, the Boss GT-100!" thread

Recommended Posts

Looks like Boss recently put out another COSM amp modeling board. I've steered clear of the Boss gear for quite a while, the ME50 got sold when I bought the X3L back in the day.

 

Just wondering how their newest offering sounds, anyone compared this with either the HD500 or the AMPLiFi floorboard?

 

The design looks about the same as the other GT gear, with the exception of, the GT-100 has dual LED screens. Oddly, (as of yet) Boss / Roland does not have an in-house editor for tone creation that can run on a computer - The software editor wasn't developed by Boss, but a third party.  And it's priced up a touch, Sweetwater selling them for $550.

 

It does seem to offer some interesting dual tone / dual amp function that is assigned based on frequency, like a crossover.

 

"A/B Channel Divide. With it, you assign different amps and effects to each channel and divvy up the signal by dynamics and frequency. Each channel drives its own effects and amp settings. Assign creamy, liquid lead tones to the mid-to-high pitches, for instance, and gritty, cutting tones to your lower notes."

 

The GT-100 only offers a single 1/4" and an 1/8" in, no digital inputs and no XLR inputs. It looks like it has a mono effects loop.

Well, two and half years ago... ;)

 

Although, to be fair, I think they did announce the 2.0 firmware version at the last NAMM.

And I think there is an official Boss/Roland Editor, as well.

 

I'm gonna test drive one in a few weeks. If I actually get the chance, I'll report back!
